Scholarship Winners
Southeast/Northeast District Bill Murray Scholarship
Lydia Boerner

My name is Lydia Boerner and I am from the Tuff Riders 4-H Club in Halifax County. I was also able to receive the Billy S. Murray 4-H Horse Program Scholarship. I was so excited to get the news that I had received a scholarship, especially one revolving around 4-H and horses, since they both have had a huge impact on my life. I am so glad that I had the opportunity to receive this award because it is going to help me greatly in my future to go to Edgecombe Community College and become a dental hygienist, like I have wanted to be since I was a little kid.

It means so much to me that I received this scholarship. The Southeast District 4-H horse program is where I got my start in 4-H, outside of going to club meetings. It holds a lot of important firsts for me. The district show was the first major 4-H event that I went to. It is what pushed me to pursue the chance of riding at the state show, my first big goal in 4-H. I volunteered at my first horse show with this district. I am so thankful for all of the opportunities our district has given me over the years, as a rider and as a 4-Her. I have enjoyed horse bowl, horse shows, clinics, and so much more. I am honored to represent our district as a recipient of the Billy S. Murray scholarship. I will be attending Johnston Community College, pursuing a Nursing degree.
